Saft battery types

Elfa Elementenfabriek has worked with Saft for almost thirty years. The company has its head office and factory in France and also has factories in England, America and China. Saft can be called the expert in the lithium field, with more than 40 years of experience and a very wide range of batteries for different markets. Since a few years Saft is also owner of Tadiran. Together, these two brands are the global market leader for 3.6 volt lithium batteries.


Saft uses three different types of batteries. These are the nickel, primary lithium and rechargeable lithium (li-ion) batteries.


Nickel Batteries

Saft nickel batteries are known for their excellent performance in extreme temperatures. They are popular in the aviation industry. They are also used in trains, drilling rigs and telecom masts.


Primary lithium batteries

These batteries offer high energy and high power solutions. There are 3 variants of this type of battery: Li-SOCl2, Li-SO2, Li-MnO2. They are particularly interesting for applications that need to work for a long time and where replacement is difficult to achieve. A difficult to realize replacement is often also expensive. Since primary lithium batteries can perform for such a long time, they are especially interesting for gas, water and electricity meters.


Rechargeable lithium (li-ion) batteries

The most powerful li-ion batteries come from Saft. They are used for fighter jets and Formula 1 cars. This type of batteries can provide emergency power at -40°C.
